Make Two Ingredients Coconut Barfi 


New Delhi: Coconut Barfi is a flavorful Indian sweet recipe prepared using just 2 ingredients – coconut and jaggery in less than 30 minutes. 


  • 1 1/2 cups Grated Coconut  
  • 1 cup Jaggery (Gur, chikki jaggery, or Anta god) 


  1. In a pan on medium to medium-low heat, add jaggery and coconut, and keep stirring the mixture. 
  2. It changes its color from light brown to dark brown in a few minutes. Please see that you keep stirring the mixture during the entire process to avoid it from burning at the bottom and for even cooking. 
  3. The mixture becomes thick, excess moisture evaporates and starts leaving the base. For a softer barfi, remove it at this stage. For a perfect melt-in-mouth barfi, cook for additional 1 or 2 minutes. For a barfi with a toffee-like texture, cook further for 3 to 4 minutes (mixture becomes harder to stir).   
  4. I generally cook for additional one or two minutes on low flame after the mixture becomes thick (i.e. I do not stop at the soft burfi stage), all the moisture has evaporated and starts leaving the pan. Switch off the flame.  You should be able to make a ball easily from the mixture. 
  5. Spread this mixture on parchment paper or a plate (thali) greased with ghee or butter and flatten it with the back of a ladle and let it cool for few minutes. Cut into the desired shapes and enjoy.
